Gua sha has long been a folk therapy widely used by the ancient Chinese, as in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). Many people believe that a person’s ”qi” must be balanced and flowing freely to ensure their health and wellbeing. Gua sha aims to move this blocked energy.
Using a gua sha tool allows you to work deeper into the muscles and fascia than by using fingers alone. Facial gua sha is used to relieve tension in the muscles of the face, boost blood circulation, and encourage lymphatic drainage to reduce puffiness.
Or you can just use it for the pure pleasure of caressing your face with beautiful, magical crystals.
